This Tuesday, March 24, 2015, the Drupal community lost Aaron Winborn who was diagnosed with ALS a few years ago. In honor of Aaron, the Drupal Association and Angie Bryon recently announced the Aaron Winborn Award. The announcement reads:
In honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn (see his recent Community Spotlight), whose battle withAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is coming to an end later today, theCommunity Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, would like to announce the establishment of the Aaron Winborn Award.
This will be an annual award recognizing an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It will include a scholarship and stipend to attend DrupalCon and recognition in a plenary session at the event. Part of the award will also be donated to the special needs trust to support Aaron's family on an annual basis.
Thanks to Hans Riemenschneider for the suggestion, and the Drupal Association executive board for approving this idea and budget so quickly. We feel this award is a fitting honor to someone who gave so much to Drupal both on a technical and personal level.
Thank you so much to Aaron for sharing your personal journey with all of us. It’s been a long journey, and a difficult one. You and your family are all in our thoughts.
Standardizing personal experience sounds impersonal, doesn't it? Yet, that's what we're talking about here and there are plenty of software folks believing it's the right time for such an effort. When companies manage or utilize a number of systems involved with customer experience management, there is a need for those systems to transfer data from one system to the next. It is a huge challenge for CIOs, trying to streamline heterogeneous technologies and the data and transactions flowing from each solutions from their information system, while at the same time avoiding losing control over the collected data.
Working together, Jahia and Enonic have launched a new project at the OASIS international consortium to develop a standard that will enable the creation, management and delivery of personalized web and digital experiences.

The digital learning content management business solution provider, eXact learning solutions, and its learning content management system (LCMS) have been named on the official list of Tin Can adopters.
CMS Report doesn't usually mention software point releases that only fixes bugs and brings no features to the CMS users. However, I screwed up last month. I failed to mention the February release of Joomla 3.4. So let me make up for that oversight by mentioning the release of Joomla 3.4.1.

New research from access control innovator, SecureAuth, shows that despite much debate, the password isn't dead yet as two in five IT decision makers (ITDMs) admit that passwords are their only IT security measure.

It sound simple, give your employees the opportunity to bring their own devices to work. The company can perhaps be less aggressive in their cyclical replacements of hardware and your employee is happy because they don't have to lug around two devices, theirs and yours. I absolutely like the concept of Bring Your Own Device. But implementing BYOD and benefiting from BYOD isn't so easy. As an IT manager, it scares me that the employee's device may have control over the company's software and device. As an employee, it scares me even more that company's software could control my device and have access to my personal data. At the end of the day, this only goes well if you have established a good BYOD policy for your business.
Attached below is an infographic provided to us by StudyWeb. Want to convince your company to allow you to bring your own laptop to the office, or maybe you're considering implementing a BYOD policy at your company? Check out the pros and cons below, and use the guide to assist you in creating an official policy that will help protect your company from the pitfalls of BYOD.

It’s likely clear to most companies by now that any realistic view of the future of the business world involves cloud computing in some way. It’s difficult to ignore the variety of benefits that come from adopting the cloud, including more productivity from employees, more business agility, and, of course, significant cost savings.

While many of these reluctant businesses won’t dispute the benefits of cloud computing, they may have trouble seeing how to maximize those benefits to make such a transition worth it. The answer is to take a “deep dive” into the cloud.
